Marius Seidlitz, born in 1985, lives and works in Bayreuth, Germany. He has a Fine Arts degree from the Bauhaus University. The artist is also an engraving master and experienced creative designer, skills he uses to inform his visual art practice. With the use of oil paint, his colourful work addresses the complexity of the human psyche. He examines notions of beauty and perfection, evoking such questions as, “What is beauty?” and, “Does perfection exist?”

Seidlitz’s expressive imagery is inspired by the diversity of the female body, imperfections and various distinctions are deliberately accentuated as homage to femininity in all its forms.  Colourful curves, multi-layered nudity with all the contradictions between attraction and repulsion are the foundational narrative to every subject. Always multidimensional and dynamic, Seidlitz ensures that his portrayal of the female form, while surreal, is disparately accurate. Since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, entangled bodies, suggestive limbs and lips, sink into colour-intensive surfaces and dynamic lines, creating the artists specific characters.

Seidlitz puts the concept of the Self, and the multitude ways that it presents, to the test. When viewed through the lens of the heart, the vulnerability and paradoxically the commonality of all humanness, can be viscerally felt. The obscurities elude to, not only the differing aesthetics of people, but also the embodiment of their differing, intellectual, emotional and social needs. Nudity is a paramount feature of his subjects, symbolic of the nakedness of the human soul, while also pointing to the simultaneous simplicity and complexity of humans.

Marius Seidlitz has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout Germany. He is the recipient of numerous funding grants and awards both for his visual artwork and his engraving craftsmanship.
